About the season (extract from the booklet):

Without any doubt August 1972 is the focus of this year for Elvis, 64 strong shows for this season, Elvis's voice was great - even richer than in his January/February season! Elvis also looked superb - just as good as in the recent June tour with such high quality shows, looking great, in excellent spirits. 

After a modest opening night the show will go growing day by day. Seems strange but Elvis keeps his performance to the top for all the season and even this attitude will be growing to the end of the season with shows longer and with a very serious approach to the music, Elvis cared about his songs and each performance was 'fresh' like he was singing' it for the first time, also Elvis being a perfectionist expected a quality performance from everyone during every song! 

Maybe the present of 200 English fans from the first September give him an extra incentive to deliver some killer shows, maybe only for a while he could to live his dream to be playing in Europe.

Without doubt a different kind of approach to the music the normally we can’t find in Vegas‘ Elvis’ performance (normally also in his earlier season Elvis begins to be tire of Vegas after the second week of the engagement..) he seems to sing the show his life and you know when he wants he can delivery what nobody other singer or rock band can do. In the same time he sings a different kind of songs.
